Choose a holiday apartment in Provence Aix-en-ProvenceA visit to Aix-en-Provence, the historic capital of Provence, is a trip back in time. Aix is a town that chose to ignore the industrial revolution and instead remain part of a previous century. Although in recent years Aix-en-Provence has enjoyed economic growth and new development, it is still filled with history and culture. Ancient heritage structures and classic museums sit alongside contemporary Aix-en-Provence apartments and villas and modern architecture, such as the upcoming National Choreographic Centre.
Take a walk through old town and discover the secret treasures of the Saint Sauveur Cathedrale, a unique blend of Romanesque, Baroque, and Gothic architecture, built on the site of Apollo's temple. Stroll through the rue Esquicho-coudo, a narrow street that dates from the Middle Ages, or take the Rue Gaston de Saporta and see breathtaking 17th and 18th century mansions. Artist Paul Cezanne was born and lived in Aix, and his paintings can be seen in L'atelier Cezanne (Cezanne's Studio) and Le Musee Granet. Aix-en-Provence is famous for its many fountains and springs, including the ancient thermal baths at Thermes Sextius, named for the Roman consul who founded the town in 123 BC.
If your visit is in April, you can take in the festival of the Provence tambourin, a musical gathering where the whole town is serenaded with the sound of drums and tambourines. In June and July the town hosts the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and Musique dans la Rue, with opera, classical and jazz music and theatre performances and master classes.On a holiday in Aix-en-Provence you can enjoy the finest Provencal cooking or dine at one of the hundreds of restaurants featuring gastronomic delights from every imaginable culture.
